    Default Apple And Google Refuse ESRB Mobile Ratings

    Apple and Google plan to ignore ESRB rating system for mobile-games

    The ESRB, which has long rated console and PC games for content, has announced plans to begin rating mobile games sometime in 2012. However, these ratings might not matter much, as both Apple and Google are planning to ignore this new ratings system entirely.

    Apple offered no official comment, but a Google spokesperson said, “We’ve put a lot of effort into Android Market’s rating system, which now works well globally. While we support other systems, we think it’s best for Android users and developers to stick with Android’s existing ratings.”

    With Apple's iOS and Google's Android platforms accounting for the vast majority of mobile gaming, this decision seems to make the ESRB's planned mobile ratings nearly irrelevant.
